Our vision

Elgin’s vision is to be the global leader in traffic disruption technology. 

Our mission is to transform the planning, management and communication of activities that affect road users.

Elgin has built a world leading road network management solution. Our cloud-hosted SaaS platform enables road authorities, utility companies and other stakeholders to share information about planned disruptions, plan and implement traffic management interventions, monitor and analyse network performance and communicate with road users in real-time through channels ranging from social media to sat-nav.

 

Our story

When Elgin launched the roadworks.org website in 2012 we brought about a digital revolution to the management of roads across the UK by creating a national collaboration platform where every activity that has the potential to disrupt traffic could be planned and shared with all stakeholders.

Before Elgin, roadworks information was siloed across hundreds of local authority databases,  road closures were communicated via notices in local newspapers and traffic authorities had no way of communicating live disruption information to sat-nav services.

Since then we have grown the capabilities of our platform, providing unique and ground breaking solutions such as the ability to monitor the impact of individual roadworks across the whole network in real-time and an app that allows road workers to transmit live road closure updates to sat-nav services such as Google Maps.

 

Market leading technology

In Sept 2019 we relaunched our platform as one.network, reflecting the whole network view that our system uniquely provides, spanning strategic and local roads, planned disruptions and live incidents, largescale road improvement schemes right through to local utility works and public events.

Today, over 90% of highway authorities in England & Wales use one.network services, as well as most major utility companies, road contractors and event organisers.

In 2018 Elgin received investment from leading private equity investor Bridgepoint, reflecting the ambition and confidence in Elgin’s future growth as a leader and innovator in the mobility solutions market.
